Diaspora group lauds Makinde’s peace efforts
Omituntun Initiative in the Diaspora (OID) has described Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde as a leader of historical policy, conflict resolution, and management expert due to his peace efforts.
The socio-political group appealed to the youths to embrace absolute peace and tap into the lofty opportunities of the Makinde administration before and after the protest, noting that their grievances through the peaceful protest had been noted.
Spokesperson of the group, Ayotomiwa Adebayo, in a statement yesterday, called for absolute calm among youths.
He said: “The voice of Nigerian youths have been heard loud and clear, even beyond Nigeria, and Governor Makinde has taken proactive measures towards a youth-oriented government to transform youths in the state with meaningful programmes, including development initiatives and entrepreneurship.”
John Oyedeji of OID Dublin urged the governor not to be distracted by critics who were hell-bent on distracting him from delivering dividends of democracy to the Oyo people and building a better future for the youths and other citizens.
In the same vein, OID youths around the globe commended Makinde for protecting youths in the state during the protest for good governance tagged #EndSARS.
OID Youth Ambassador in Germany, Mr. Tunde Olarinoye, said Makinde’s quick intervention made a huge difference towards the restoration of peace, law, and order in the state.
“His rare leadership qualities, crisis management experience, and conflict resolution approach demonstrated during and after the #EndSARS protests in Oyo was highly commendable,” he added.
Also, the youth representative in Canada, Mr. Tosin Adegoke, stated that Makinde’s people-oriented government and all-inclusive programme embedded in his development plans would surely have a transformative effect on young people as future leaders.
The United Kingdom representative, Mr. Abiola Olopade, used the opportunity to appreciate the governor’s efforts towards good governance and applauded him for his policy on pensioners.
